Mother-of-four Joann Ward (second from left, bottom row) and three of her children were also shot. Family have since told the Dallas News that Joann and two of her daughters, six-year-old Brooke (top row, center) and eight-year-old Emily have died (bottom row, second from right).
Ward’s six-year-old stepson Rylan, who was shot four times, is still in hospital after undergoing emergency surgery. The mom’s eldest daughter Rihanna, 9, had the glasses shot off her face but escaped injury by hiding under a pew as shots rang out.
